Solving Problems Simply
scFLOW from MSC Software is a state-of the art Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) package which uses a polyhedral mesh to solve some very complex problems with short runtimes that have surprised long term users of other CFD packages.
As well as being powerful it is very accessible to the non-expert user. You are led through the steps to set up a model by the structure of the Graphical User Interface (GUI) – meaning simple problems can be solved simply.
What does it do?
scFLOW is capable of solving aerospace and automotive aerodynamics, performance of rotating equipment (ie fans, pumps etc), design problems of electronic devices, multiphase phenomena, marine propeller cavitation, and varied problems.
Through co-simulation and chained simulations coupled with MSC Software Marc, Nastran, Adams and Actran, more realistic coupling and multidisciplinary analyses with fluid, structure, acoustics, and multibody dynamics can be achieved.
Available with MSC One
Best of all, if you have MSC One token licensing scFLOW is available to you now using the same tokens as for your structural FEA requirements.
So if CFD is something you do only occasionally and FEA is your main focus, or vice-versa, MSC One gives you a cost-effective access to these tools as well as other disciplines of CAE.

The video demonstration below shows how we set up, run and post-process an internal duct flow simulation merging two different temperature flows using the CAD model of the duct assembly.

Using Sensors to Latch a Mechanism
Sometimes with a mechanism simulation you need to trigger a change in the mechanism when an event such as a latch engaging to stop a component from moving any further. You can model the geometry and use a contact model to capture the physical engagement of the geometry, but this can add to your simulation run time and require a lot of tuning to get working happily.
An alternative is to control the behaviour of the latched component directly using motions that are triggered by the use of Sensors – detecting when the event occurs using a measure and then altering the connectivity of the model to reflect the new configuration with the latch engaged.
This simple example illustrates how the user sets up this type of simulation ….
